Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. My parents and brother and sister in law
are coming over for lunch today and dessert. My wonderful husband has to work graveyard tonight. :( So after we eat it will be nap time. I stayed up way too late last night making cheesecake, cherry pie, deviled eggs and a make ahead breakfast. I am so ready for a nap already lol.
I will share this amazing cheesecake recipe tomorrow. It looks so yummy I don't know if I am just looking forward to eating so that we can get to the cheesecake. I have some layouts to share too, and am hoping to get to those tomorrow.
Until then Happy Thanksgiving. Remember to be grateful for the good things in our lives, as there are so many people with so much less than all of us.

Christmas Card photo Shoot

I wanted to make sure that before little Jacob went in for his surgery I got their Christmas Card photos done. I had great plans to take them somewhere that was full of trees (ya ok we live in the dessert, but thought I could find a park with trees or something). It ended up being really cold that day, and it was the last day we had to take them, and since we were leaving early the next morning we had a ton of things to do. So we just went out front as usual. They turned out though so I am happy. Off to check on my little guy now.

Winner Winner Chicken Dinner


Check this out here . I WON.

I won the new mistletoe collection from Making Memories. I can't wait to get it in the mail.

On other notes I was so sick for about 4 full days. It was HORRIBLE. I am so glad that my wonderful husband was off for of those days so he could take care of me and the kids and do all the cooking and cleaning and house stuff.

Now of course I have managed to get the little ones sick...

Off to the grocerry store now though...back to the "routine".

Want to win this?

I am posting this so I have an extra entry to try and win this. If you would like a chance to win as well go HERE
What an amazing give away. If I won I would totally give most of the stuff to my mom since she has roosters in her kitchen.
I would keep all the other stuff for myself.
Good luck to everyone.

Pumpkin Patch and Halloween photos

This was a busy Halloween Season. On Friday we went with some friends to the pumpkin patch. The little ones picked out a little pumpkin and the bigger boys picked a medium pumpkin. After that we got the little ones dressed and went with our friends to her dads work for a little trick or treating. He works at a reatly company and they had some little games for the kids and some trick or treating. They had pizza and drinks as well. The little ones got their picture taken too. The older boys wanted nothing to do with the picture taking.

Then we went to dinner at Applebees with our friends and had a great time. We don't go out to dinner often anymore with Jacobs crazy work schedule and especially not with anyone else. So it was fun for many reasons.

Then on Saturday we got up and cleaned up around the house. Then we went in search of a costume for the older boys. We have never waited that late and it was a mad house. We ended up at Party City and it was CRAZY. I think after we found them each a mask we ended up waiting 25 minutes in line just to pay for them.
We came home and the kids carved their pumpkins. We saved all the seeds and today Jacob is making roasted pumpkin seeds.
Then we went to my moms church and the kids did some trunk or treating. They also had some bounce houses, blow up mazes, slides and games for the kids. They also had cotton candy, nachos and popcorn. It was fun and the kids had a great time. After that we went to In n Out for dinner and then off to trick or treating. We walked around for about an hour and a half and the kids got another bucket full of candy. We now have a huge box of candy sitting on the kitchen counter.
It was a fun filled weekend and I am glad for today to relax. I have some laundry to do and pick up around the house again and must go to the grocerry store later, but that is about it. I want to get some pictures printed and would like to scrapbook them soon.
I have plans with my friend Coree to go shopping on Tuesday and I can't wait. We are going to go down the hill to Collective Journey and then stop at Joanns and Michaels as well. We both have a project that we want to make, and so we are going to do it together...I am excited I can't wait.

Now that it is November 1, that means that little Jacob's surgery is only 17 days away, and only 16 days until we have to go down to LA. I have so much running through my brain about it all and I know it is going to be a long process for his recovery. My poor little guy.
There are so many things I want to still get done in this next 2 weeks...crunch time. Hopefully that will give me alot to share here though. :)
